Get Set for Spooks: Legends of Equestria's Fall 2022 Update is Now Live!
Hey again, everypony! We're just dipping towards the spookiest time of year, so it's time to get into costume, with Legends of Equestria's newest release, v2022.04.01, now available for download!
As always, you can check out our full changelog for all the details of this update, but here's just a few highlights for you to know about!
Obviously, with it being October, the in-game season has shifted; Hallowtide has come to Equestria once more, and the seasonal decorations are up - along with a few new ones!
This also means that the usual seasonal costume quest events have also been enabled, along with some new styles available from your friendly neighbourhood graveyard keeper (for some reason)!
A major addition we hope you'll enjoy is a suite of new, main storyline quests that our writing team have been hard at work on; we consider this 'Act One' of the main storyline for LoE, so check out what all your school friends are up to, and learn more about the story we have planned for the future! And speaking of your childhood chums, a raft more character avatars have been added for the Mane Cast, to add a bit more personality to their dialogue!
The Mining talent has seen some love too; new tools are available, and a variety of rocks are now scattered across the landscape, meaning that all our dreams of becoming true rock farmers can finally be realised! You guys all had that same dream, right?
Some new attacks and animations have been designed, hopefully making combat more interactive; my personal favourite is this draconic meteor barrage that is sure to make them a more challenging fight!
The in-game world map has seen some more love, with clearer labels added to help you navigate around Equestria just a little easier than before!
And one less-visually-interesting-but-still-major change to note: enchanted armours are now crafted using the enchant skill available to unicorns, rather than the artisan Talent. We've also added a host of new artefacts that can be enchanted, though, so you can take your protection and style to the next level!
That's far from everything, of course; there's a whole smorgasbord of bug fixes included in this release, and we just rolled out a fairly major upgrade to our back-end server architecture (you may have noticed the game going offline this weekend while we worked on this) which should help us to improve stability going forward. As always, I would recommend checking out the full changelog if you want every detail of our changes for this version of the game!
If you're playing using our Windows launcher, your files should update automatically; other platforms may need to visit our downloads page to get hold of the latest game files. If you're playing on mobile, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update! For Android users, please note that their verification of this version release is taking a little longer; you may have to wait a while before this release goes live for you!
That takes us to the end of this summary! We hope you enjoy everything we worked on for this version release, and we look forward to seeing you all in Equestria very soon!
